Long Lake, NY, Nov 21, 2012 — Students, teachers and staff at Long Lake Central School celebrated Thanksgiving with a special lunch this week. It included turkey and the usual side dishes: potatoes, stuffing, corn bread, carrots, and pies o'plenty for dessert.
For the last three years, the school has celebrated the Holiday with special meals during their usual lunch periods. But on Monday, the entire school celebrated with one big meal -- everyone ate together in the gymnasium. The highlight was locally grown vegetables and dishes prepared by the students.
The staff and teachers are hoping the annual event allows their students to learn more about creating community, cooperation and fun by commemorating our national harvest festival. Todd Moe has more.
